Since Media Create probably won't be out until Monday, and leaked Famitsu numbers have been reliable for a long time, here's a sales thread for the weekend.
this next gen the 360 is being outsold bye lastgen ummm wheres zhuk's ultament gaming concil now? (yes i spelt some of that rong.. deal with it)
Bro the Xbox 360 got outsold by the PS3, PS2 AND PSP for the month of December(Christmas Worldwide) at a 150$ cheaper Price than the PS3... with two games bundles on the premium... and with Halo 2.5, Biochunk and NO Effect just released. THAT SUCKS. Its only the end of year one for the PS3. The PS2 outsold a 260$ 360 in its 7th year... and the PS3 can't beat the Crusty Cardboardbox? HAHAHAHAHAHA Keep telling yourself that XBOTS
Bladestar you say the same things and no one cares... The Xbox 360 just lost in December to all 3 Sony systems^^^^ think about that. Halo just released. Its cheapp like the Wii now. PEOPLE DON'T WANT THE XBOX 360. It will not become mainstream. It will lose.
You have to be more specific.... you have to say it this way....
this next gen the american 360 is being outsold bye lastgen japanese...
The xbox 360 failed in japan years before it was released... and any american console will fail in japan...
Let me fix it a little.. japanese people by default prefere japanese consoles... since they are prompt to get the games they want..
In other for the xbox 360 to win in japan there has to be nothing like it provided by any japanese company... for example mcdonnals... ipods... these are unique products way ahead of what japanese people produce within it's category... now the PS3 and the xbox 360 are way too similar and for the most part get the same games... why would they pick a foreign product when probably even the warranty is better for the PS3 there? I was in japan I pick the PS3 by default... the same way Germans prefer than own cars... japan prefer their own cars... nothing wrong with that. You are acting surprised... I find that interesting... it may be a sign of your wisdom.
If something's good, it'll sell no matter where it comes from. Japanesse use Windows, you know, and it's not even good.
Utter rubbish. Go and ask 50 of the top American businessman if breaking into the Japanese market is difficult and they will say yes. The Japanese have always been extremely loyal to their own however, they are being slowly westernized in terms of lifestyle choices.
Many businesses fail to gain a foothold in the Japanese market because they are not sympathetic enough to the cultural differences.
The 360 was never going to be a hit in Japan, not when they have the choice of two local products (i.e. Nintendo, Sony) which know that market inside out. The only way Microsoft will break into the Japanese market is if works on a deal with Sony to release a unified next-gen console to supersede the PS3 and 360.
However, just like the PS3 does not need to win the American market to survive the 360 does not need to win the Japanese market.
For once.. bladestar made a valid point. Dare I say it, but he gets a bubble! =O!!! Anyways, it is true that the Japanese don't want an American console. The XBox was doomed from day 1 in Japan. Also, if the stereotype is true then Asians are smart so we should follow in their footsteps xDDDD!!!! Lol, that was just a joke DONT TAKE ANY BUBBELZ! I lost one just because I told some guy to shut the [email protected]
and the PS3 is being outsold by portable system and a console wich looks like a gamecube 1.5...what do you have to say about that dozzy724? in japan where SONY was the king...xbox never did well in japan and never will...but SONY was the king and now the king is dead and NINTENDO took bakc the twrone.
I didnt read all of Bladestars reply. It sounded like thousands he's written before and I'm easily bored. Thats why I dont play my XB that much anymore. (Sorry, if I didn't take a shot, I would have left myself open for a shot, you understand.)
I did get the gist of it however, and by his own rational he must admit if what he says is true than Americans only like XB because its American. Sorry you cant have in both ways.
And what does that say about the rest of the world who dont have their own homegrown console to barrack for. Surely they are allowed to pick for themselves which they truly believe to be the best without National Pride clouding their feelings.
Just curious, which console is selling the most in all but a couple countries again?
did 30,000 PS2s sell in Japan? You'd think the whole country had that thing by now. Oh and MS should really just call it quits in Japan and focus on the US and Europe.
now yes, thats really bad but compared to 3000............yea.
now if the ps3 were the same price as the 360, the ps3 would probably be selling around 80,000 a week over there.
The mediacrate numbers wont be published this week
we will see
DMC4 is quite a huge game in Japan
BUT again we will see
Does anyone else find it weird that DMC is so big over there? Considering the types of games most Japanese gamers seem to like DMC just doesn't seem like it would be their style. I guess the story is just off the wall enough to make up for the western style of play.
Software sales are bad
....but what it will do to the 360
Not much, just like what happened with Dynasty warriors would be my guess.
PS3 outselling 360 5:1! The strongest teritory for the 360 is ofcourse USA but the 360 is only just outselling the ps3, and the gap narrows with every passing day.
In europe the 360 is almost non existent except uk. How can some people still say that the ps3 can`t win this gen? Maybe not this year but it will happen.
And Wii outselling PS3 by almost 4:1. And X0 by 18:1. Don't count the little white machine out, please.That should tell you about the Jap market in general. European one, there's no real way to say for sure. Too many damn countries.
Ps3 sales will rise when DMC4 but wat about when SSBB comes out for the wii. There sales are going to boost so high.
THE TRUTH IS FINALLY OUT! --PS3= MERCEDES BENZ , XBOX360=FORD CONTOUR. (My apology to Ps3)
Ps3 is the best console out there. Just take the Ps3 for a test drive and you will send your xbox 360 to the Pawn shop.
I don't care about this anymore since i think it doesn't make sense to pay for Xbox live and all those money you will have to spend on your xbox 360 after buying it. Honestly, only people who are very weak in economics will think the xbox 360 is Cheaper than the Ps3. i just found out that the Ps3 is the superior system. there is no doubt about Ps3 being the Mercedes in the gaming world. Microsoft can keep my xbox live accounts and my points that was binding me to xbox 360. I saw the light when i took a friends Ps3 for a test drive. Its power and features are way better compared to my xbox 360. i can't believe Gamestop convinced me to buy an xbox360 because of their look warm attitude towards the Ps3. Comparing my Xbox to the PS3 is like comparing Ford Contour to a mercedes Benz. installing leather and allow wheels on a Ford contour will never make it a Mercedes Benz. END OF STORY. Gamestop workers Stop spreading lies and display ps3 products the same way you display xbox360 products. Customers have the right to know the truth. The media should know light will always prevail over darkness.HONESTY!!!!!!
Very impressive numbers for the PSP!
PS3 sales will rise next week with the release of disgea 3 in japan... that RPg is pretty big there so expect an 80K thing in sales that week and probably the week after only to have it go up fabulously with DMC4 on the 31st. it's gonna be interesting, Smash brothers is a phenomenon there, so Wii will likely sell around 200k that week for a couple of weeks with that game release. how ever PS3 sales will rise. when MGS4 releases world wide though, it's a wrap. as it also goes with the release of GTA4 around the same time... ^^ awesome stuff i cant wait to playing those games PS3 is on the rise ^^ enjoy it and play it
the japaenese are more accustomed to getting a product that is made from japan. and of course, the 360 doesnt have that many games on it that interest the japan. sure they have some but again, there gonna get the ps3 for a game that multiplatform if anything.
thats where i bring america in, americans are different, they just get w/e the hottest items on the market is at the time.
thier not really accustomed to anything per say. this also is really why i believe the ps3 will eventually sell just as much as the 360 in america during the holidays of 08.
but if sony can reduce the price(which they can quicker now since the ps3 is a bluray player and there gonna be making plenty of profit)
they can really start to sell ps3s in japan. sony is in a good position right now.........AND I HOPE THEY DONT MESS IT UP
maybe when i get on sony, nintendo or microsofts board i will.
the only numbers i care about are the amount of good games coming out for my consoles or pc.
Thats what sets this site appart, is the arguments between fans and fanboys of each console. Without that this would be just another news site. If one hates this kind of arguments they should`t get involved. Arguments are fun and most people enjoy it and no1 is dragged into it by force. If you don`t like it stay out of it.
the games should get more attention than the sales.
look at all the great games that have disappeared into obscurity due to not having amazing sales.
Nice_cuppa you can`t tell people what to be interested in! People make they`re own decisions! Sure what you say makes total sense and that`s the way it shoul`ve been, but people like to make a big deal out of silly things, than there`s no1 that could make a decision on what or what not people should be interested in.
this seems to have gone over your head so i will point it out for you.
look at my other post,,,,,it says i don't care.
and then gives my opinion.
if you care or have a different opinion thats fine.
but i will still give my opinion as thats the whole point.
please don't try to make out i'm telling people what to do or think as i'm not.
an apology would be nice but i won't hold my breath.
oh nohs the xbots want to silence the truth by taking my bubbles away- oh well
back on topic- still cant reach that 10,000 mark can we mr.gates hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm? why? no goddamn RPG's
and nintendo might be king of japan for now but wait until final fantasy 13- Japs go crazy for it and will forget all about nintendo huh? and DS what now? (not flame againts the wii- i love the wii im just saying the japs will forget all about it)
i wanted wii to be beating the ps3 4 to 1 or more. but i'll settle for 3 to 1 for this week
